Wisconsin Science Festival

A four-day statewide celebration with events for all ages.

Be part of the 10th #WiSciFest!
October 15-18, 2020

The importance of science and technology is more apparent that it’s ever been. That’s why we remain committed to celebrating the 10th annual Wisconsin Science Festival in October and are preparing for a physical-distanced #WiSciFest.

Many of you have found ways to create engaging programming that happens in other ways (online, on paper, on television), and our goal this year is to highlight these programs so the public has a diverse set of offerings to choose from. If you are hosting or promoting an outdoor or online event, or an activity that involves 10 or fewer in-person participants, you are encouraged to sign up!

Special opportunities for 2020 include Badger Talks, What’s Alive in Wisconsin?, Science Behind the Scenes, Did Ya Know? and more.
